and still more challenges...

Color Throwdown is celebrating 100 challenges this week. Loved the color combo and once I started using it I couldn't stop. The two cards I have to share today use the color combo. I decided to give Paulina's sketch another try for the Practicing Creativity challenge. This time I stuck a bit more to the sketch, only substituting the oval for ice cream. I have been wanting to make an ice cream card since seeing Susanna's cute ice cream cone card for Spellbinders. Only problem...I didn't have any ice cream stamps. While taking a glance at the You're Dandy set the other day, I realized those clouds could become scoops of ice cream. The cone is simply a triangle of kraft cardstock that I scored.

Next up is a card that I made using this weeks CPS sketch #174. Again its using the colors for this weeks Color Throwdown. That cutie patootie robot is a Paper Works Co stamp that I won as blog candy from Sunghee. Isn't he the cutest thing?! He's alot of fun to color with Copics. I combined it with the Gizmos and Gears Lizzie Anne set.

Here's a closeup of the robot...

Thats it for today, but I'll be back tomorrow for this weeks Stampendous challenge! Later!
